ISSUE 24.3 : Ideas for Micro units | Pro Pods

The “Pro-Pods” Project is an educational studio project that took place in 1400 (2021-2022) at the Tehran Urban Innovation Center (TUIC).
Reducing the spatial volume of a house generally decreases its capability to cope with and respond to various conditions.
